“Go Local”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

Locally owned and operated. In town with great service and lovely setting. Loved the locally sourced trout dish and homemade breads. Reasonably priced, esp compared to bigger cities (I spent $38 for 3 courses, including tax and tips - but no alcohol). would definitely return.

“Chestnut Excels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

Clean architectural lines greet the patrons. Comfortable seating. Spacious. Nice atmosphere. Excellent food, though a somewhat limited menu. Check it out online. Three-ounce filet could be cut with a fork. Superb service was very attentive. Nice wine list. Reservations recommended.

“Nice evening out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

Friendly hostess, visible manager, and friendly, efficient server (Sawyer). We split a couple of apps (fried green tomatoes and the mussels in green curry) and then split a steak. The mussels, in particular, were delicious - and a different preparation. The kitchen split our dinner for us in the kitchen, which is always appreciated. Tried the bread pudding - not the best, not the worst, I've ever had. Would go back when in the area.
